The Karanpur-Moradabad-Kashipur-Rudrapur pipeline will be approximately 182 km in length with an investment of Rs239 crore. This pipeline will be connected to GAIL's existing Auraiya-Dadri pipeline at Karanpur. The second pipeline from Saharanpur-Haridwar-Rishikesh-Dehradun will be approximately 170 km in length with an investment of approximately Rs255 crore. This pipeline will be connected to GAIL's existing Bawana-Nangal pipeline.

GAIL and UJVNL propose to set up around 350 MW to 500 MW gas based power plant each at both places to meet the power requirement of the state. Natural gas required for both power plants will be supplied by GAIL.

On Tuesday, GAIL ended 0.57% up at Rs433.10 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex gained 0.31% to 17,560.30.
